My left eye vision is getting blurry & dry after 4 months of lasik surgery. At first it was fine; any reason?

Dryness after lasik

Lasik always causes some dryness bc a flap is cut and that cuts your corneal nerves and causes decreased corneal sensation, so decreased blink rate. Hence dryness
This is why I switched to noncutting LASEK as it doesn't cut nerves so doesn't cause dryness
You'll need Restasis and Punctal plugs now
